All our undergraduate law degrees allow exemption from the academic stage of qualification as a Barrister.

Graduates wishing to qualify as barristers may proceed directly to the vocational stage of legal training - the Bar Training Course.

Students who wish to become a solicitor must, after graduation, undertake the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE).  

Overseas practice

Law graduates from the University of Nottingham may be eligible to practise overseas including in Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Pakistan, and Singapore, where admission to the Bar (or equivalent) can be attained subject to meeting the jurisdictions' conditions.
